    Thats got to be fake, what person do you see running around here with a samsung admire showing 1x but running a 4g speed, and you clearly can see that his images on his web browser barely even loaded up lol. I think he is just trying to get views:(

    2400kbps is 2.4mb which is roughly true 3g speeds

    I did a 3G Speed mod, by editing the build.prop, and using a Simple IP. AF won't let me post my screenshots..
     
  9. Use tinypic.com to upload your screenshot then copy and past the link it gives you for message boards into your post here and it should work fine.

    and im telling you its not possible. the technical specifications for "3g" cdma technology

    "To combat reverse link congestion and noise rise, the protocol calls for each mobile to be given an interference allowance which is replenished by the network when the reverse link conditions allow it.[8] The reverse link has a maximum rate of 1.8 Mbit/s, but under normal conditions users experience a rate of approximately 500-1000kbit/s but with more latency than cable and dsl."

    thats with evdo rev a. using various speed tweaks you could in theory bump past that "barrier" by cacheing and using speed boost technologies but i assure you you cannot go faster than 2.5Mbps. try doing those speedtests on teh speedtest.net app where it cleans out the cache on every test.

    i live about 2 blocks from a sprint tower and get -65 to -76 signal and i average about 1.1-1.3Mbps on 3g speeds, (4g i run around 4.7-5.6Mbps)

    Something is wrong with that site... I run the test and my speed was way over the 4G Speed ...!!!

    To make sure download the apps that measure the speed and compare, I don't think that site is reliable (Although it makes people happy :) )
